International Sweethearts of Rhythm

She's Crazy With The Heat, Jump Children

Anna Mae Winburn Conductor and Vocalist

The ISoR was a really great band with great soloists, excellent ensemble playing and really good arrangements. Since it was a fully integrated. all woman band they weren't recorded anywhere near as often as even mediocre all male bands of the time were. They could play and swing with the best of them.

Lady Be Good

Pauline Braddy's drum solo is incredible, even on this old air check.
